It could be as simple as a couple of burned out bulbs. Have you checked them? The A/C turns on when you select windshield so it will defrost/defog the windshield, nothing wrong.
Thanks for your response. I took the clock off the dash and opened it and there is a very small bulb (like the size of a LED) but I don't know how to remove the old bulb and replace it with a new one. Is this something that must be done at a Honda dealer? I hope not because I know they will kill you with the price of parts and labor. Speaking of lightbulbs, is it possible to get a colored lightbulb for the clock? I would love to have the blue colored illumination on my clock (just like those blue indiglo illumination on Timex watches) and dashboard to be blue just like the 86-97 accords... are those possible to do?
If you know the procedure to replace the lightbulb, could you please help me? Thanks...
I'm sorry but I don't have an answer for you. Hopefully others will chime in and assist. I would consider taking the clock to the Honda parts counter and asking about the led replacement. It sure can't hurt.
The clock pops out simply. Just don't rip it out and it'll be fine. Go to the dealership and the bubls are the the $3.00 range. Just let them know "Clock bulb for x year Accord, they should be in stock.
The car is looking for a turbine...
I just replaced the bulb on the clock of my '98. It is simple to do and the bulb only cost around $2 from a Honda dealer.
Just take a flat head screwdriver and easily slide it under the clock and pry it up and out. As you turn the clock to look at the back of it, the bulb appears as a very small plastic screw in the lower left and corner of the clock. Just a quarter turn or so of the bulb with a small flat headed screw driver will have it pop right out. Just screw the new one and and replace the clock back in the dashboard and your all done.
So clock backlight blew out as well and I went to radio shack to get an LED to replace it. I tried a lower voltage one as well as some of the higher ones they had. After blowing both of those I remembered I had a volt meter and hooked that up and then realized that I had been trying to hook up 3 and 4 volt LED's up to something that had a 28 volt connection according to my volt meter. Then I found this thread and saw that people found the right LED at the dealer.
